How to reset your OneKey hardware wallet

If you forget the PIN code of your OneKey hardware wallet device and need to generate new recoevery phrases or import another wallet, you can use the "Reset Device" function to erase the data in the security chip and restore the device to factory settings. Once the device is reset, you will not be able to recover the previous hardware wallet data.

Important Tips

  • Before resetting the device, make sure you have backed up the current hardware wallet's recovery phrases.
  • Keep the recovery phrases properly stored and do not make any digital copies.
  • You can recover the wallet address and crypto assets as long as you have the recovery phrases.

Reset Methods

  • Enter the PIN code to unlock your OneKey hardware wallet device.
  • Select "Settings" - "Security".
  • Select "Reset Device".

Method 2 (Applicable if the device PIN code is lost)

  • Enter the wrong PIN code ten times consecutively.
